For this weekend since I have been left at home and unsupervised, I am going through 20 MCU movies in the MCU’s chronological order, starting from Captain America: The First Avenger through to Ant-Man & The Wasp.
When one of the most talented surgeons around suffers a career ending car accident, destroying his hands beyond any reasonable use. After being turned down by every other surgeon that is near his level of talent, he learns of someone who had suffered a injury that left him paralysed, and yet he now walks.
And so Steven Strange begins his journey to Kama Taj, where he needs to learn how to put aside his significant ego and learn how to control himself and the hidden worlds of mysticism to redeem himself in his own mind. But power comes with both a cost and a responsibility, and it is this responsibility that he desperately seeks to reject.
But when the ancient evil Dormammu begins to arrive brought by the Ancient One’s former students who have turned away from her teachings, he has no choice but to fight to defend the earth from its touch which is sure to end civilisation as we know it. (Amazing how often that seems to happen in the MCU isn’t it?)
I love the shit out of this movie. Umm. Wow. Just watch it. Like repeatedly. Like now!
